Description

This workshop is devoted to the shell-and-tube exchanger geometries handled only by Xist. The course focuses on the extensive options available in Xist and how you can use these methods effectively to solve several example problems. You will leave the class knowing how to take full advantage of the features this robust tool offers.

Key Topics

  • Overview of Xist interface and the benefits of HTRI methods
  • Process specification rules for rating, simulation, and design modes
  • Guidelines for specifying fluid properties
  • Description of Xist geometry input parameters and their defaults
  • Interpretation of Xist outputs for validation of unit performance

Suggested Participants

Designers of shell-and-tube heat exchangers and process engineers who evaluate their performance

Course Fee: US$450

Description

Learn the fundamentals of boiling mechanisms and how they apply to reboiler designs. This course provides an overview of selected reboiler configurations with an emphasis on recirculating thermosiphon reboilers and kettles. We will develop accurate thermosiphon and kettle models using Xist, identify design guidelines based on current research, and discuss reboiler piping specifications in Xist

Key Topics

  • Pool boiling mechanisms including nucleate boiling and film boiling
  • Intube flow boiling mechanisms for horizontal and vertical configurations
  • Boiling mixtures
  • Two-phase pressure drop

Suggested Participants

Engineers who design and evaluate reboilers

Course Fee: US$650

Description

Because vibration can cause critical operating problems in heat exchangers, it is important to analyze the potential for flow-induced vibration. This workshop teaches you how to develop an input file, interpret results, and obtain accurate prediction of the vibration potential for installed units. Using Xvib you’ll practice determining if a heat exchanger is susceptible to vibration damage.

Key Topics

  • Analysis methods for fluidelastic instability and vortex shedding
  • Velocity profile development
  • Vibration susceptibility

Suggested Participants

Engineers responsible for the mechanical condition of shell-and-tube heat exchangers

Course Fee: US$450
